It started in the middle with Nank/Marlion/Chimp - simply too brutal for the dogs.

yeah we brutalised 'em.

what a night.

cant wait to brutalise the Dees, who are a more genuine contender than the Dogs,

which isnt saying too much.

I really love how brief and shallow Lynchy and Noah do a form slump

Port V Lions tonight tells me whose No.1 challenger tonight

I'm barracking for Bears over those Big Mouths.

Port have fast become a hive of Floggery and Shithousery.

watching the highlights over and over, wanting to confirm that the dogs ran out of legs by the last quarter. Bolton's last goal, they did not try to chase him down.

I've watched twice on the replay, and I think my BoG last night was Hardwick. Although technically wasn't on the ground, I think he set this up mid week where he mentioned that our Blitz was a perfect counter to the dogs handball game.

He talked about wanting to convert in the forwardline and make the most of our opportunities.

Everything I saw last night, even some of the game day moves (loved the Baker up the ground move) had his fingerprints all over it.

From the players, I think Cotchin, Houli, Lynch, Bolton and Nankervis for mine - don't care which order.

I said it last week and I'll say it again. Our backline are only as good as our system defense up the field. They looked really good as a unit last night,
but the ball was taking a long time to get up there at times in the second half. Grimes getting in Cam Bwuce's head was a treat especially.

Generally I don't watch replays of games I attend but did this time as it was an intriguing game.

On the TV the second quarter looked nowhere near as bad as it looked at the ground. We weren't out of it but the Dogs managed to convert a few times while we didn't. Don't get me wrong, Footscray were clearly much better than us in the second, it was just that we weren't as bad as it looked.

The impression at the ground was that we lifted in the second half, no different on TV. The pressure was way up and that's where the Dogs are susceptible, they can be prevented from playing their game.

But, as someone said to me today, this could be a good loss for Footscray. They got to see the level they need to reach. It was Round 7, good timing for a wake-up loss. I reckon Footscray will be contending this year. They are very good and, if they have the right attitude, will learn from this.

Well said.

I thought not so much best ,but most influential were Lynch when things weren’t going our way, put the fear in their backs and then I thought the Skips third quarter was vintage big game Skip , though if I was doing the votes I’d have given them to Bolton

I know it’s illegal, but I really want to see someone tackle Bailey Smith by the hair.
Actually not illegal ( unless they've changed the rules ) Tommy Alvin, on the run got dragged down by his long flowing locks n bitched n moaned at the maggots about it when he didn't get a free. Hair hanging down far enough meant it couldn't be paid as over the shoulder.
Would be funny as *smile* watching Smiff get rag dolled by that rats nest.

Self indulgent post , however as I drove back up the Hume to Wang on Sadee mornin , couldn’t help but think how bloody good it is to be back going to see the Mighty Tiges at the home of footy, the G .

Regardless of us winning one of the best home an away wins I can remember , the fact we can start of at the London, have a couple with some of PREs finest while we come up with numerous theories on the game ahead, then with most of us been 3121 get to head over to the G an enjoy a ripping game and to top it off head over to the MRR for further analysis and celebration ...Go Tiges

I thought it might be called too high?

I think they paid it as legal against Alvin, but only because they just didn’t know what else to do, but then said if it happened in future it would be paid the other way to prevent it from recurring regularly.
I recall the great Peter ‘Woosha’ Welsh tackle Michael Woolnough by the hair in the 1980 GF. He got a free kick paid against him :p
